The Future of Sparta GK
Since the launch of Sparta GK in 2015, I believe we have offered a stand-out glove at a competitive price which has gained a loyal support all over the world. Whatever level GK’s have plied their trade we have supported to the best of our ability and appreciate the loyalty and support we have received from the community, both in person and online.
However, the climate for small businesses has changed over the last 6 years and never more so than in the last 18 months. Running costs have increased over this period in all areas of manufacturing, postage and taxes and we have kept our product at what we believe is a supportable price level for all. If we were to continue in our current guise we would need to raise the prices of our products considerably, which would go against the ethos of making Sparta GK available for all.
With this in mind we have come to the difficult decision to ‘pause’ the business for the foreseeable future.
There will be no restock of the armoury but the brand will continue to have a presence in the GK world.
What the future holds, who knows? But we would like to place on record our gratitude to you as a loyal supporter of Sparta GK. It is truly overwhelming how the brand has grown and a massive thanks to you for helping us grow a global presence. To have our gloves worn on every continent bar Antarctica (there’s still time!) from grassroots to the international stage is truly humbling. Whether you’re a player, supporter or supplier we could not have done this without you.
If you’d like to grab a slice of Sparta GK history, we’re still operating with our normal level of service and ready for you!
A massive thanks from all of us, stay tuned and we’ll see what happens in the future...
Chris, Max, Richard & Cliff
